The piracy website, Tamirockers have been known for notoriously leaking pirated versions of big-budgeted movies immediately after its release, in turn affecting their box office collections. Even after stricter regulations and guidelines being passed by the High Court, piracy websites like Tamilrockers continue to thrive by using proxy servers and subdomains. The film industry has been battling piracy for almost a decade and even after succeeding in battling piracy to a great extent, few websites like Tamirockers continue to target big-budgeted Bollywood and Hollywood movies. In the past, Tamilrockers has been responsible for leaking movies like Petta, Housefull 4, Baala, Avengers: Endgame, Jumanji: The Next Level and more.
